Thursday Artist Of The Day: Monica Gallagher

Posted on 17 March 2011 by TH3 No08

Over the next couple of weeks we are going to take a look at some of the talented comic writers and artists we spent time with at Staple-Austin over the past weekend. We had a great time meeting and interviewing these guys and girls and want to give you a chance to check out some of their work.

Monica Gallagher is a talented comic writer and artist that just happens to be a super nice lady. She also makes awesome horror heroine portraits. You can check out her work and find more info about her at www.eatyourlipstick.com.
See her super long bio from her website below the interview we did with her at Staple…

Monica Gallagher is a graphic designer during the daylight hours and a comicker at night. While an animation major in college, Monica first tiptoed onto the comics scene with her webcomic Gods & Undergrads, following the awkward adventures of a girl transitioning into college life while simultaneously discovering her connection to Greek gods. Once her eyes had been opened to the online comics scene, Monica couldn’t help herself and continued to produce more work.

A short stint in amateur modeling led Monica to create both an autobiographical story dealing with her struggles with self-esteem (titled Boobage) and a fictional series dealing with a professional model who works part-time as an assassin (titled Lipstick & Malice). In 2010, she chronicled her experiences modeling in her autobio When I Was A Mall Model. Luckily, Monica emerged from modeling with both her boobs and her criminal record intact. She then discovered something else to become obsessed with and inspired by — Roller Derby. Bonnie N. Collide, Nine to Five is the result of her inspiration — a weekly webcomic that combines the superhero side of being a rollergirl with the Clark Kent side of working a day job. Monica just completed her first season as a member of the Junkyard Dolls, one of the four teams of lovely ladies of the Charm City Roller Girls. Sadly, she’s currently on a break from derby at the moment due to time constraints, but you better believe she’s still out there skating!

Recently, Monica contributed to Oni Press’s Roller Derby Anthology JAM! Tales from the World of Roller Derby which was released on June 23, 2010. She is currently working on illustrating a full-length graphic novel for Oni.

Monica continues to create short stories, contribute to anthologies, and tackle illustration work from her home in Baltimore, where she lives with her boyfriend and their dueling cats. Check out her blog for the latest dirt – you never know where she’ll pop up next!
